TSCRA Applauds Court Decision on Lesser Prairie Chicken

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 11:45:30 CDT

TSCRA Applauds Court Decision on Lesser Prairie Chicken The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Thursday applauded U.S. District Judge Robert A. Junell’s decision to overturn the listing of the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species. This announcement comes after the lesser prairie chicken, a Great Plains bird, was listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as threatened last year.

“Judge Junell’s decision to vacate the threatened listing of the lesser prairie chicken is a major victory for ranchers and landowners across the country,” said TSCRA President Pete Bonds. “It is apparent that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service failed to consider the many state conservation efforts before listing the prairie chicken as threatened.

“The administration should realize by now that ranchers are the best stewards of our nation’s land, and they have proven their ability to successfully implement their own conservation practices. Onerous federal regulations only interfere with the outstanding work American cattlemen and women perform daily to provide food and fiber worldwide.

“TSCRA appreciates Judge Junell and Texas and Oklahoma leaders for their work on this very important issue. We will continue monitoring endangered species listings and fighting against an overreaching federal government that continues trying to regulate us out of business,” Bonds concluded.
